Cassie & Graeme

A Celtic-Transatlantic Love Story.

The Bride, Cassie, was beautiful. The venue, Dundas Castle, that sits on the Fourth River was beautiful and of course so were the views.

Cassie and her family and friends flew in from all over the States. Graeme’s family were equally international with a substantial Cumbrian contingent to add to the mix. All in all, it pretty much contributed to one fabulous party just a few miles from Edinburgh.

As a documentary wedding photographer, what really makes the wedding are the people, their emotions and the stories behind them. I have known the groom and his lovely family for many years and it was clear that there were some very real tears of gratitude and celebration that day, making my job all the more poignant.

The boys began their day with a swift rugby match before kilting up, shall we say. Meanwhile, the girls had a more relaxed morning in the bridal suite with a champagne breakfast and the lovely ladies from ‘The Made Up Team’ taking care of all things glamour. The ceremony took place in the historic Auld Keep, home to Oliver Cromwell in the 1600’s. Finally, everyone enjoyed the wonderful food and dancing in the Grand Hall and the rather fabulous marquee that sits on the castle lawn.

It was a real privilege to photograph this lovely couple’s wedding day, with many special moments that I know meant so much to the family. Here are a few of my favourites, I hope you like!
